Funeral Arrangements

We highly recommend that you and your family plan for the future,
spending some time now to put your wishes in writing. 

We have several documents that may assist us in helping you and your family
when the need arises:

Funeral Instructions

This document can be printed out. You can then discuss these issues with your family.
Once completed, we will put it on file at the church so that your wishes are known.


The Trinity Memorial Garden

Many have requested information about interment in our Memorial Garden.

The following is a list of Policies and procedures regarding interment.

Trinity Memorial Garden Policies and Procedures

Just inside the wall at the northeast corner of the Church Yard is the Memorial Garden. Here we bury the cremains of our loved ones in a simple and dignified way. The Episcopal Church has long included cremation as a burial choice. 

Graves are marked by square stones engraved with the personís initials.

As we look at the opening sentences of the Book of Common Prayer Burial Office, we see, 

"I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth; and though this body be destroyed, yet shall I see God; whom I shall see for myself and mine eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger." 

The garden area also includes two benches that provide family and friends a place to spend time for remembrance of the departed person.
